Just to let you know...

Back in April me and my f put an offer on a house and it got accepted. We now have a move in date and it is in about one month time. One month might seem like a lot, but when you work full time and have a whole week holiday in the sun in between, it really isn't that much.
We started packing this weekend but have much more packing and disassembling to do (anyone fancy helping disassemble a large IKEA wardbrobe? The ones with heavy frosted glass doors?). My evenings from now on and the next weekend will be spend packing, cleaning and organising the move. After that I will be away in the sun for 8 days. F will stay, he doesn't like very hot weather and southern Portugal in July is usually 35 degrees Celsius up.
And then, after the move, we have to do everything all over again, backwards. Clean, unpack, assemble. It is all very exciting though and I can't wait!

Sewing wise, there won't be much done. I might try to squeeze the muslin for my McCalls 5661 blouse but cannot be sure. I will still blog, but posts might be further apart and with little sewing connection. I hope you stay with me these two months.

I have also realised that I completely missed my June book review, so will make sure one is ready for July. I have actually chosen and revisited a book and have a draft ready but I guess the excitment of the giveaways plus MMJ2011 Brighton meetup took over my mind.


  1. Congratulations! Show us photos of the new place!

  2. Oooh how exciting! Good luck with the move. I will be moving in the autumn and am already dreading all the packing/ just takes so long! At least you have a week in the sun to hopefully provide some much needed relaxation and a break from the craziness - enjoy!

  3. Congrats! How exciting! I kinda like moving, as it gives me a chance to have a sort out and find things I forgot I had :)
